A few days ago skopelosnews posted a couple of photos of the car shown above. The owner of the car is a hard-working painter and uses his car to transport materials etc. Skopelosnews never intended to ridicule or make fun of the car or its owner and sincerely apologizes for any harm caused.

Πριν από λίγες ημέρες το skopelosnews δημοσίευσε μερικές φωτογραφίες από το αυτοκίνητο που φαίνεται παραπάνω. Ο ιδιοκτήτης του αυτοκινήτου είναι ένας σκληρά εργαζὀμενος άνθρωπος και χρησιμοποιεί το αυτοκίνητό του για μεταφορά υλικών κλπ. Το Skopelosnews ουδέποτε είχε την πρόθεση να γελοιοποιήσει το αυτοκίνητο ή τον ιδιοκτήτη του και ζητά ειλικρινά συγγνώμη για κάθε βλάβη που πιθανά προκλήθηκε.

Pity poor Ithaki, which has been politely hosting rogue capitalist soon-not-to-be-Sir Philip Green and his third superyacht, the 90-metre Lionheart. An unusually combative Sky News journalist tracked him down to what we believe is the chi-chi port of Kioni, where the soon-not-to-be-Sir Philip took umbrage at being asked why he was flitting around the Ionian on hols when he was meant to be sorting out the £571million hole in the pension scheme at the failed BHS empire – an empire that the soon-not-to-be-Sir Philip relieved of £400million before he sold it off for £1 to another dodgy wideboy. The funniest part of the video, after Phil threatens to push the cameraman into the sea, is the crewman handing him a bottle of water and scarpering out of the way of the camera.

Eleven thousand sacked BHS workers probably won’t be able to afford a holiday on Ithaki this summer. Some might, however, want to apply for any vacancies in the 40-strong crew the Lionheart employs, including the full-time dog walker.
